User avatar #102 to #46 - Bravechampion (07/03/2013) [-]
Here in Colorado they may have legalized weed, but they still ban fireworks like every other year because of fires... it sucks.

19 brave firefighters went in,  but the fire consumed 19 fierce warriors who died in the heat of battle.   
Stronger men have been lost to worse, but life moves on gentlemen and so must we.   
   
My acknowledgements go out to the fighters and they will be missed, but as I said, life moves forward, and so must we!   
   
It's what they would have wanted, it's what they died for, and, It is what must be done!

... heat of battle... please tell me that wasnt a pun
#144 to #120 - shadowvision ONLINE (07/03/2013) [-]
I know there is another word for this kind of word usage, I just wish I could remember it, I don't think it deserves to be called pun, pun feels too cheap. Maybe poetry?

I have a feeling that this clipping is from Chrno Crusade, someone correct me if i'm wrong.
User avatar #50 to #41 - duhqueenmoki (07/02/2013) [-]
It is, it's from the manga, volume 8 (final volume)

*spoiler*
The clip from when Rosette sees Chrono for the first time (in I think 10-15 years) after their fight against Aion in which she thinks he died.
User avatar #63 to #50 - KEpToK (07/03/2013) [-]
ahh yeah I remember now... Many tears were shed on that night.
User avatar #109 to #63 - vinlandknight (07/03/2013) [-]
That was the first manga I ever read.
User avatar #160 to #109 - duhqueenmoki (07/03/2013) [-]
me too very attached to that series
User avatar #164 to #160 - vinlandknight (07/04/2013) [-]
I was going to watch the anime, but once I heard the voice actor for Rosette, I decided not to.
User avatar #11 - fargone (07/02/2013) [-]
Wait, what happened? I read about some firefighters dying in Texas but haven't heard anything about Arizona.
User avatar #20 to #11 - marking (07/02/2013) [-]
Me neither and I live here. Theres been a ******** of fires though.
#28 to #11 - xlxluckyjoexlx (07/02/2013) [-]
The Granite Mountain Hotshots were trying to create a break in the fire and starve it of fuel, but a wind shift caused the fire to wrap around them at least that's the latest I heard of it. 19/20 on the team died.

Kind of not from america so do you mind telling me what happened ._.
User avatar #121 to #106 - reaperriley ONLINE (07/03/2013) [-]
to correct/add to kevin's post. There were 20 fire fighters who like he said were trained to do this sort of thing and 19 of them were killed. That is the most fire fighters we have lost in one event since 9/11.
#107 to #106 - kevinlasvegas (07/03/2013) [-]
19 specially trained fire fighters who's job it is to fight forest fires where fighting a fire in Arizona that was started by lightning. When they were fighting the blaze the winds shifted and began to over take them. They deployed there fire shields as a last ditch effort. The fire was to much, and it took all 19 men's lives.
#99 - anon (07/03/2013) [-]
21 years old. two of them were 21. I'm almost 21, and I know for a fact I'm not going to wake up tomorrow, knowing there's a chance im not going to have the time to say goodbye to my loved ones. You can say it is the equal to 13 year olds being all excited to go to war, expecting it to be a great adventure, but these were very young servicemen, barely out of firefighting training, and their deaths proved that even though they were faced with a situation YEARS ahead of their own experience, they stood together and died to contain the fire. I'm not Canadian or American, but damn me if they don't deserve a moment of silence.

This hits me even harder, considering my dad is a firefighter...really makes you feel for all of the families even more knowing that any day my father goes to work his life is at risk...
User avatar #159 to #113 - thejgwentworth (07/03/2013) [-]
What your dad does is very admirable. We firefighters belong to a brotherhood. It doesn't matter where you live, what color you are, or what language you speak. if you're a firefighter you are part of the brotherhood. Inside every firefighter there is a flame that unites us. We always have eachothers backs. Instead of worrying you should be overwhelmed with pride that your father has what it takes to be a hero.
User avatar #166 to #159 - masonlovesboobs (07/04/2013) [-]
Oh i do. Every time I get asked by a family member if i am going to follow in his footsteps, i have to say no, i do not have the courage that my father has to go into a burning building every day, or to help people who are grimly injured in car wrecks and other accidents. A true hero he is, and a true hero you are.
User avatar #81 - yallusernamestaken ONLINE (07/03/2013) [-]
My brother just got sent on this fire along with 400 other brave men, i hope they all stay safe and contain the fire before it destroys any more homes.

Massive fire in Arizona. 19 Firefighters died.

User avatar #153 to #151 - dzubelyudee (07/03/2013) [-]
Sunday arvo. I'm not sure, man. It made the news over here in NZ, but you must have just missed it.
#154 to #153 - crusty (07/03/2013) [-]
We don't have fires in Canada.. Except BC. BC only has fires. If BC stopped having fires we'd all die because the trees would produce too much oxygen.
#150 to #145 - infinitereaper (07/03/2013) [-]
Firemen fought the fire...

the fire won.

I'm sorry

AZ fag here... this hurts, man.
User avatar #147 to #129 - texthepony (07/03/2013) [-]
One of my friend's cousin's is a firefighter in Holbrook, so they thought he might be called in to assist with the fire. After they found out about the 19 firefighters, the family kept trying to get a hold of him, but couldn't. Thankfully, it was just a phone issue, but they were scared and I felt terrible for them. I have lost loved ones, and I give my regards to the families that have lost loved ones to that fire.
User avatar #48 - Smidgit (07/02/2013) [-]
to everyone saying "oh boo hoo they were american/people die all the time"
just because of the above reasons doesn't mean you can't have a shred of human decency and stop to think about their families. It is perfectly acceptable to feel sad for everyone dying in wars and in poor countries AS WELL AS people dying in places like america.
Seriously now. Don't be bellends.
User avatar #2 - MetallicaForever (07/02/2013) [-]
az fag too. didnt really feel much for the picture, but damn that description
User avatar #114 - vanoreo (07/03/2013) [-]
I don't feel for the lost lives at all and I am sorry for that.

I don't feel good about it "lel people died"

I don't feel "oh man that's horrible"

I feel "well that sucks"

It's odd
User avatar #138 to #114 - tigersstripes (07/03/2013) [-]
It's kind of the same way for me. I am not good at feeling for people anymore. I just, oh, I'm sorry....sucks....but it doesn't bother me any. I know that if someone I knew had been there, how I would have felt. But I can't feel for these people. Sorry guise....

You're implying that most people don't care about that either. You're a real sack of **** .
User avatar #140 to #76 - GnRNoD (07/03/2013) [-]
The problem is, that a lot of people do care about that, but people who say that nobody cares does not know about their effort or involvement and nobody cares to really show it unless it's for some type of political show-off or something and that's a different war that takes place in our homes by the media and what it decides to show us.

I agree with what you're saying, but I believe you need to think that most civilians in that area don't really have a choice to leave and can't have any type of intervention in what goes on around them, you have to remember that not everyone is involved when a war takes place.
User avatar #85 to #70 - contradiction (07/03/2013) [-]
because when something like this happens in a developed country that isn't going through a civil war then people will make a big deal about it.

I'm middle eastern and I can fully say , **** the middle east and their savage ways, they might as well kill each other and rid the rest of the middle east and the world from their **** .

Who cares. We make 9/11 jokes and yet we care about this?
